RED LAKE -- Child development, leadership, democracy and culture are the core of the Indigenous Parent Leadership Initiative that will soon make its debut at the Red Lake and White Earth Nations come March.

Funded through the Community Solutions grant, created to address challenges related to healthy child development within Indigenous and communities of color, a free 21-week program will be offered to parents and caregivers looking to empower their voices and reconnect with their culture.

"IPLI hopes to inspire parents to be empowered to use their voices as agents of change within their community," IPLI Facilitator and Civic Design Team Member Kris Manning said. "This will benefit not only (the parents') lives and their children's lives but also their community and future generations."
